These clips were shot on April 22, 2006 at the Maker Faire in San Mateo. They were cut up into short bits for live video mixing, and used by Synesthete to win the VJ Battle on April 23 at the Faire. They are now made available for everyone to use.
There are two series included here. One is a collection of 31 short clips from the faire, marked either mjpeg_vga meaning they are Quicktime Motion-JPEG files with a size of 640x480 or mjpeg_qvga signifying a size of 320x240.
There is also a set marked thimbledance_expressive, 18 short clips of audio and video compressed into Quicktime Motion-JPEG-A at 640x480. These are all from a demo of the Thimbletron by ECC at the Faire.
